Four Reformers

The story of our times follows the un-preached story of a few men who reformed a fading and forgotten social system practiced for generations. The Vedic system had no more novelties to offer. Vedas, which had remained predominant for thousands of years, had transformed meaningfully into the Vedantic system. It was playing catch up, the system pliable to reforms. A large percent of reforms injected the beliefs of Buddha and Mahavir Jain, some went ritualistic as with Mimansa, and others reworded (rejuvenated) the classics to the times and society prevailing then. This site reflects on Shankara, Vivekananda, Yuktesvar and Aurobindo who led the reforms but kept the house in order.
